    This is so unexpected and so awesome! Does this mean we will see Thrawn and Vader working together in Rebels season 4?

    A sequel, huh? Sounds great to me; guess we haven’t seen the last of Thrawn in SW novels. ^_^

    Day one buy for me. I love Timothy Zahn. Next to Matthew Stover, he was always one of my favorite SWs writers. And Thrawn is by far his best creation. And the latest book is hands down my favorite NC book. So hear about a sequel and having Vader; sign me up.

    Because, Zahn to me is one of the prime reasons why I loved Legends and really kept SWs alive.

    I never read the original Thrawn novels at their time of release but caught up before reading the NC update. Have to say I prefer the new Thrawn a lot more! Cannot wait to read this 😀

    Does this mean the book will be after the original Thrawn book or it will be about Anakin’s and Thrawn’s encounter during the clone wars?
